The Standard in Attorney Search and Placement
BCG was very responsive and provided me the opportunities that I think were more specific to what I was actually looking for, than other recruiters and you guys had way more contacts and opportunities too. By finding the opportunities that I wouldn't have thought to contact and taking care of the initial reach out and cover letter and setting up the first interview was a huge help and also in negotiating my offer as well. I would say that BCG is the best, I am kindof biased because you helped me get the job.
I would have to say that my favorite thing about working with BCG and Karen was the extent with which she valued my personal preferences. She took a lot of time speaking with me about what I was looking for in my next job, what kind of law I wanted to practice, and what kind of firm I wanted to be in and did a remarkable job of tailoring her search results to those preferences. On a more personal note, she really respected my time and you are respectful of my time too, I just mean she frequently talked to me after business hours because she knew that is when she know I was available. She made my job search exceptionally easier. I didn't, other than carrying a resume to the interview, have to do any document work. I sent all of my documents to her and I didn't even have to find my own connections and determine where my resume was going to be sent, the whole process was handled by BCG. It made it a lot easier and that was a process that would have otherwise been very time consuming. Especially when you are already working as a full time lawyer.
BCG is prompt and responsive and within less than a day of me talking to Romina, she had already gotten me with the firms to target and started doing research for me. The speed was important because I was on a really short time table. I had let her know that, and she jumped right into action and was super responsive and prompt. She reviewed my materials and gave them some thought and quickly got them out there as soon as I got them back to her. She identified a really good opportunity and jumped on it and ended up working out. Working with her took all of the footwork that I would have had to do in terms of researching what firms to target, applying to those firms, which is the big thing, you know filling out all of the many page long combo box drop down to plug in your education and all of that like you do when you apply directly like through a website. I didn't have to do any of that. I just sent her my materials and she took it from there. I have only talked with 1 other recruiter and she was fine as well, but she didn't seem to know the market as well. I feel like with Romina, she had a much better handle on the firms in that location and firms that would be good targets for me. My confidence level with Romina was very important for me.
I really appreciate that BCG kept me up to date on the openings and found those for me and tried to give me a quick summary of what those entailed. It really saved me a lot of time because I didn't have to look at different job boards to keep myself updated because someone else was doing that for me. BCG Attorney search is #1.
My favorite things about BCG Attorney Search is that the staff were very knowledgeable, responsive, friendly, and generally just had a good demeanor. It made it easier to find a job because I had someone that knew the market and that could do the leg work for me. They would send me lists of everything that was coming up and what we were looking for. It made it incredibly easier than doing it on my own. BCG ranks number one when compared with other recruiters that I've worked with.
I really liked the recruiter I worked with and her experience and I appreciated her ability to guide me through the process. I really helps to narrow your search down to jobs that are a fit for what you are looking for. BCG is the best recruiting firm I have ever worked with.
BCG was very responsive. The recruiter I worked with was candid, which was very helpful. BCG also helped me focus my search and also made me aware of opportunities I wouldn't have found otherwise. BCG is the best overall recruiting company I've interacted with. My recruiter was knowledgeable, and she seemed actually invested in furthering my career.
So I worked with Amanda, and she was great. I had a friend who was looking for a firm at the same time as me and I feel like his recruiter was a little pushy with him and we both had specific goals, and wanted to transition in to a field of law that we are not in right now. I feel like Amanda really listened to me in that respect and didn't try to push me toward any firm regardless of whether or not they had an active practice in the area of law that I would like to start practicing in. While my colleague who was working with a different recruiting firm had a very different experience where he felt like he was being pushed toward every and any firm and his recruiter wasn't really listening to what he wanted. I spoke with Amanda and told her what my goals were and provided her with my resume and transcripts, and she kind of just took it from there. She reached out to the all firms that I said okay to. It was very easy and I didn't really have to do anything. I have worked with one other recruiting company at first, and BCG was much better!
I thought that the regular updates really helped and I'd say that Romina was really consistent with her reaching out in terms of pushing things forward. I thought that helped made it more efficient and I thought it was a good way to keep things up to date and move things forward in terms of getting interviews and screeners and even updating my materials. I would say that BCG is at the top of my list for recruiters and certainly number one.
I found my recruiter (Romina) very personable and easy to talk to, and I thought she gave very good advice in terms of navigating the process. She was very communicative whether it was via telephone or text message. I am not easily reached by telephone so being able to text was really important to me. BCG made my job search easier because they were able to find my next job and get all of the behind the scenes stuff done so to speak, the introductions, I guess.
Lorie was very attentive and very much aware of what I wanted, what I didn't want, she was casting a wide net, but she took into account what I was really looking for so I really appreciated that instead of doing the mass resume thing. I like that she was really responsive and one of the things I really appreciated about working with her is that she was very involved, I had issues like when should I send my notice and so on and she basically guided me through the whole thing and is still guiding me so I really appreciated that about working with her. First of all, BCG allowed me to know about opportunities that I wouldn't have known about otherwise, so that presented more opportunities than I would have found on my own. Second of all, Lorie took care of everything in terms of the resume, cover letter and follow up that meant that I didn't have to do anything but approve or disapprove the jobs and that basically took care of the whole thing. BCG is definitely at the very top of my list of recruiters.
I don't have experience working with any other search firms, but Jennifer was just really available to talk, she was helpful and it was a positive experience. I felt comfortable talking to her about any concerns I had and she was very responsive whenever I had questions. I basically didn't even have to do anything in my search.
This was my first time working with a recruiter and Christina was more than I could have hoped for. She was amazing. She took the time to get to know me and what my goals were and what me and my family wanted for my legal career and she tailored her search for firms to meet those needs and she was interested and engaging and responsive, very very very responsive to inquiries I had or emails I sent, really quick turnaround time throughout the interview process called and asked how the interviews went and took an interest in all of that, I couldn't have asked for a better experience with Christina. BCG was awesome too. I really enjoyed the websites interface in particular how it identified the firms I had applied to and kept a status update as to if they were under consideration, pass or interview, so very positive experience all around. [Working with BCG] made it easier in every sense of the word. Number 1, BCG did all of the leg work really, they did the applications, Cristina more or less prepared my cover letter. I wouldn't have had the time in my day to do this. We applied to 25 or 30 firms and that would have taken me alone, several days to do. Cristina also helped me select my writing sample that I was going to use and reviewed my resume so all of that made my job search easier. I would recommend anybody that was looking for a job in the legal profession to use BCG based on my experience. I haven't used other recruiters but my experience was just so good that I would send anybody that cared to ask me, BCG's way.There was one other recruiter that I had reached out to prior to BCG but they actually had told me that they couldn't work with me because I hadn't received my Califormia bar results yet and to come back in 3 months. I was a bit dejected by that call and then Christina said let's get going and I ended up getting a job before bar results even came out. It was something the other recruiter dropped the ball on and BCG clearly didn't.
Karen was very responsive and had great information and really listened to what I was looking for. My job search was made much easier and it went really fast, about 3 weeks and I was placed.
I really appreciated Jessica's responsiveness and how quickly she got me interviews and that I was able to get a job very quickly. She was easy to communicate with and was always available. The responsiveness of a recruiter makes a big difference. Other recruiters are slow to get back with you or take forever to provide new law firms so working with BCG made it very quick. I have only worked with one other recruiting company and you guys are certainly better than them.
I really appreciated the resources that [Lorie and BCG] provided through literature and thought it was extremely helpful during my job search. [Lorie] also gave me another voice to bounce ideas off of, kind of an objective 3rd party in a way. I have never worked with any other recruiters but my experience with [Lorie and BCG] was great.
I thought that the two [recruiters] I worked with were both very helpful and knowledgeable, both in terms of our phone conversations and [the fact that] they also sent me good prep material. Pretty much all aspects of [working with BCG made my job searched easier and] helped with identifying opportunities that I wouldn't have otherwise. They worked [with me on] interview prep. The whole experience was very positive. I've only ever worked with one other company closely, [but] I was very happy with the whole experience [of working with BCG]. [The] recruiters were very knowledgeable. I even saw some interview [prep materials] and thought that was very well done. So I was very impressed and happy the whole time.
[My favorite things about working with BCG were] the regular weekly updates and information. Other people, you contact them and you don't hear back from them for weeks. [BCG] basically went out and found the opportunities for me, in every way, rather than me going out and having to do all the work. [BCG was] helpful. You're the only ones that got me an opportunity, so [I would rank you] first [compared to other recruiters]. [I would describe BCG as] useful, helpful, [and] a company that helped me find what I needed and what I was looking for.
[My favorite thing about BCG was] the communication, with everyone working together across markets and communicating with me as well...I mainly worked with Christina and she was very on top of everything. She was also very helpful and knowledgeable with interviews and knowing the process, so she helped me a lot with that...it was very responsive [and] took a lot of the time off my hands. Communicating with the firms and also handling some of the awkward conversation situations, being that middle person really helped [made my job search easier]. [The words that come to mind when I think of BCG are] friendly, professional, and top tier. I've worked with several recruiters and overall BCG was just much better. Based on the recruiting companies that I worked with I would say [you are] number one. And I've worked with someone at Parker Lynch, Wegman, and then a couple of other solo people. Each for different reasons, I think BCG was the best. [BCG] was very friendly and knowledgeable and responsive. They have good connections to the firms and a good brand for getting you out there and working for different firms to get you where you want to be.
[Working with BCG] was very easy. I worked with Lorie because I had responded to some listings online and she got right in touch with me. She did a lot of the work and just kept me in the loop. It was very helpful. I felt confident that she was looking at listings that I probably didn't have access to...when I accepted an offer it did make me confident that I was accepting a good offer. I felt confident that I wasn't leaving anything on the table that I would have found otherwise. That gave me some confidence too. I would say [BCG is] helpful. I guess the second word I would think of is quick because it really wasn't long after I got in touch with Lorie that I ended up with an interview and then an offer. So that was great. As far as a third one, I guess efficient. I never actually met Lorie in person, we talked on the phone [and] we emailed. But I really didn't have to put a whole lot of time into the relationship. I had a positive experience working with you all, I ended up with a result that I'm very pleased with and I didn't really have to do a lot to maintain that relationship. Lorie really drove that process. Bottom line: I would say to somebody there really is nothing to lose contacting you all. If I was going to do any one thing differently, to me I would have been a little better off if I had known to stay in touch with Lorie a little bit more. Once I was contacted to do a phone interview...after the phone interview I came down to San Diego for an in person interview. It was really only after I had received an offer that I then got back in touch with Lorie. I think I might have been a little better off if I had stayed in touch with her more. Like [telling her] I have a phone interview coming up [and] we should confer...I think I would have been a little better off if I had more information going into those. I just didn't understand that it would have been important to keep in touch. Just because it was going so efficiently and it was run well, kind of remotely, so I thought it was just kind of on autopilot. That is the one [piece of] advice I would give to other people in my position.
